Top Swaps at Applebee’s

It’s easy to see why it took Applebee’s so many years to release it's nutritional information. The 1,330-calorie Riblets Basket, the 1,390- calorie Oriental Chicken Salad, and the 2,370-calorie Appetizer Sampler are just a few of the little nightmares lurking on the menu. The bright spots on the menu include the steaks and the ever-expanding “Have It All” menu (despite some serious sodium issues).

Often healthy-sounding chicken dishes come coated in fatty breading, but the Freshcado is a welcome exception. Less than 25 percent of its calories come from fat, compared with nearly 50 percent for the Alfredo.
